Ripplemaker Synth Sneak Preview

Bram Bos tests his 'West-Coast synthesis' work in progress on YouTube      19/05/17

Bram Bos has posted this new YouTube video testing his new work in progress: Ripplemaker. He has this to say about it...

A modular "West-Coast synthesis" playground, inspired by synths such as the 0-Coast, Phenol and the Kastle.

Following the experimental synthesis philosophy of people like Buchla and Serge, west-coast synthesis offers a very different approach from the traditional subtractive methods of Moog synths. It's much more about experimenting with additive timbres (hence the absence of a conventional filter) and the manipulation of CV signals.

This video shows a typical generative patch concept called "Krell" (inspired by the soundtrack of the movie "Forbidden Planet" 'composed' by Louis Barron). It's self-generating, so no sequencers or triggers are used here. But obviously Ripplemaker will be fully AUv3 compatible so you can do slightly more conventional/musical patches with it.
